Important Legal Disclosures and Information

  1. In the event PNC determines that there has been fraudulent or excessive ATM usage on the account, PNC is not obligated to reimburse any related surcharge fees, and any related reimbursements must be repaid. Surcharge fees not identified within the transaction by the originating financial institution may not be reimbursed. Any fee reimbursements occur at the end of the statement period.

  2. When depositing checks at an ATM, you may receive an offer to choose PNC ExpressFunds, an optional service that makes your funds available faster for certain purposes. There is a fee for this optional service. If you decline the offer, you will still be able to make your deposit.

  3. Offers are available from participating merchants. Your personal banking information is not shared with the merchants participating in PNC Purchase Payback. Whether you receive offers may depend on using your PNC Visa Card, or where you use your PNC Visa Card to make purchases. Not everyone will get the same offer.

  4. Virtual Wallet Student has no minimum balance requirement or monthly service charge for active students for six years from the date of account opening. You may be asked to provide proof of active enrollment in a qualifying educational institution. At the end of the six years, your account will be converted to Virtual Wallet and subject to the Virtual Wallet Features and Fees in effect at that time. If you transfer this account to a different product or account type during the first six years, you will forfeit the benefits of the Virtual Wallet Student account and will not be able to transfer back to the Virtual Wallet Student account.
